Chicamacomico is one of the most complete sites of all remaining Life Saving Stations in the nation. The site is open Monday through Friday from 10 AM – 5 PM and Saturday 10 AM – 4 PM. Admission fee is $8 per person. Site restoration work has continued over the winter with new shingles on the 1911 station, a reorganized gift shop and repairs to the parking area. This year we will be commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the heroic and captivating Mirlo Rescue.
